Its been a while since I've posted (thanks to being sick!), but now I'm back! We are still waiting on our professional pictures and portrait album, so I'm going to move on to the honeymoon!

We made our honeymoon getaway to Cancun, Mexico! It was so amazing and we were more than happy with our decision! The weather was amazing! It only sprinkled for about 5 minutes one afternoon, but the sun never went away! Fantastic!

After the reception, we drove to Little Rock to stay at the Capitol Hotel. Our flight for Houston, TX left the next morning around 9 a.m. We had a short layover in Houston and arrived in Cancun around 3 p.m.

Our resort stay included lots of fun excursions, like zip-lining through the rainforest, etc. that we could have enjoyed, but we enjoyed being lazy on beach and by the pool way too much! It was so nice to finally have no plans and no where to be!

This was the set-up for our "Honeymooners Private Dinner." We had to leave our room at 6:30 and come back at 7. When we came back, this is what we found! It was pretty awkward because we had two personal waiters in our suite serving us dinner and watching us eat!

This little iguana was my friend for the week! Our waiter brought me pieces of lettuce to feed to the little guy! His teeth are pretty intimidating! The lounge chairs in the front were ours, in a gated off section of beach with our own private waiters!

I never knew I LOVED mango until this trip! Sooooo delicious!

One of our last nights their, we were offered a private dinner on the beach! It was so nice!
This was one of the "restaurants" called The Steak. Every evening they began setup around 4:30 p.m. You could pick your cut of steak of seafood and they would cook it for you poolside. Fancy!
The food was amazing! Our resort had several different restaurants with, of course, no wait. The staff to guest ratio was ridiculous. We NEVER had to wait for a single thing! Aaron started working at his current job in the Summer of 2008 and had not been on a vacation since then! He was so excited to have a week of rest and relaxation!

We had a blast and were NOT ready to come home, but it was really nice to see our family before we "officially" moved! We didn't do the best job of taking pictures, other than scenary (we were soooo lazy!), but I hope you enjoyed them anyway!
Talk to you soon!

Wedding Day: Getting Ready!


I hope you love pictures as much as I do. If not, you will hate this post! I wanted to fit one more post in before our long weekend begins. We are going back to central Arkansas for Labor Day, the first Razorback game of the season, and to visit our family and friends! We are so excited for a long weekend to spend with our families!

Here is the big question we are faced with: What do we do with Casper? Many of you may not know who Casper is, but I'll fill you in! Casper is the cat I have had since I was 10 years old (that makes him 14!!)
We brought Casper to NW Arkansas to live with us and he loves it! I still think he misses constantly having people around, but he's making it okay. So now back to the question: What do we do with him? He HAS to have people around as often as possible! When my alarm goes off in the morning, he starts meowing until I open the bedroom door so he can get in bed with Aaron. Then, when Aaron comes home for lunch, he follows Aaron around and meows at him until he sits down. He then immediately jumps into Aaron's lap until he goes back to work! When I get in from work, he does the same thing! Its ridiculous! He is the most affectionate cat known to man and we love him to death. We feel so bad leaving him up here all weekend with no interaction....hmmmm. I just don't know!

Now, let's get back on track! Here are lots of "getting ready" pictures! Its just a big hodge podge of pictures, so enjoy! (Remember: All of the pictures I have shown you so far are NOT our professional pictures. Dale and Meredith took tons of amazing pictures and I can't wait to get them so I can show them to you!)
Happy Labor Day Weekend!
